Thanks for the feedback. You are correct the 01 just seems to pull harder and longer. I personally think the 01 is easier to drive – I know most have argued the opposite.

Interesting observation on the 99- 01 cylinder selection. I only have two 99’s and one 01 so i really am not an expert on the deal. My lap times are similar on both as i mentioned I just feel faster with the 01. The Orlando kart track has a short straight so the 01 advantage is somewhat limited.

I would still like to hear what Jimmy McNeil has to say about Button Willow comparison. The BW track has a long straight so It would be interesting to know the difference in his times, he may not want to give the data though.

Good luck in Modesto this weekend.
